If you’re looking for a great apartment community that is going to offer you comfortable living and closeness to all that the city of Lakewood has to offer without having to pay an arm and a leg, then you definitely need to experience Arbor Pointe Apartments. This amazing complex features one, two, and even three bedroom apartments all set in a rustic, relaxing area, or so it seems. While the Arbor Pointe Apartments community prides itself on being quiet and peaceful, in reality it’s only a few short minutes away from all the best fun and excitement available in Lakewood. You’d never know it though, thanks to the beautiful trees and flowers that make up the neighborhood.
What you’ll find the most of in Lakewood, especially close to the Arbor Pointe Apartments area, are beautiful parks, perfect for relaxing or engaging in your favorite outdoor activity. American Lake Park, located on Veterans’ Drive, is a large five acres and offers visitors the chance to bring their own picnics or to grill out, to take a boat out for a ride or two, to swim in a sandy natural beach area, or just to enjoy the playground and other facilities.
Nearby Edgewater Park, located on Edgewater Drive, is much smaller at only one acre in size. However, it offers free boat launching to the public, whereas most other parks charge a fee. Visitors are encouraged to picnic at the area, to watch the boats take off, or to bring out their own boats and enjoy the beautiful lake.
By far, however, the largest and most commonly visited park in the general area is Fort Steilacoom Park. This massive park offers opportunities for swimming, playing on a wide variety of playground equipment, striking up a sports game on one of the many fields, touring historic sites and learning about the history of the area, hiking, jogging or walking down several trails, and frolicking with your furry friend at the off leash dog park.
If you enjoy Fort Steilacoom Park and most people do, then you’ll also like Lakewood Active Park, which is a bit smaller but even closer. This park has a large field full of open grass where your children (or you!) can run and play. This is also a great spot to take your pets, as long as you’re willing to clean up after them! There’s also a basketball court, perfect for starting up a quick game, and lots of playground equipment for the little ones.
While this might make it sound like Arbor Pointe Apartments are all about parks and the great outdoors, don’t worry! While these apartments are definitely a good place to be for nature lovers, they are also close to some of the best nightlife, restaurants, dance clubs, movie theatres, art venues, shopping, and more that the city has to offer. All you have to do is step outside your apartment to start exploring the beauty of Lakewood and realizing how fortunate you are to live so close to it all.
